Food Network

Working together to solve poverty in Hartlepool



We collect fresh food and re-distribute it to people through a network of volunteer drivers and agencies. We collect from local supermarkets, businesses and growers to ensure that as little food as possible is wasted. We have a number of “community fridges” located throughout the town to store food in, it is then taken by those who need it.

Hartlepool  Food Network  collects surplus food from retailers which would have otherwise been disposed of. We then re-distribute this food to people experiencing food poverty through a network of community and voluntary agencies.
